The Dallas Mavericks have yet to see Seth Curry on the court this season and don’t seem to be getting him soon.

On October 7th, the Dallas Mavericks announced that Seth Curry was diagnosed with a stress reaction of his left tibia and that he would be evaluated on a weekly basis.

No timetable was given for Curry.

This was obviously a big blow to a Dallas team that just drafted Dennis Smith Jr. to be their starting point guard. Alongside of Smith Jr., Curry was supposed to be his back court mate to begin the season, just like they had practiced throughout training camp.

After the announcement was made, Curry spoke with the media a few days later where he described the injury and said at that time there was no exact timetable for his return.

Now, 12 games into the season with a 2-10 record, the Dallas Mavericks have yet to see Curry hit the court for a regular season game. Even though he has been going through pre-game shooting routines before games recently, it doesn’t look like a return is happening this weekend.

“Continuing to progress,” Rick Carlisle said when I asked him for an update on Curry after practice on Thursday, November 9th.

"“Nothing imminent. No set backs either. Certainly no bad news. But he’s got a situation that needs to be managed conservatively and accurately,” Carlisle continued."

The Mavericks have one of the best medical staffs in the league and leaning on the side of caution is something they tend to do. Even though Dallas has needed his scoring and playmaking, it looks as if the Mavs will continue to shift through starting units until Curry is back fully healthy.
